I'm at the park today. Great day to be here. No lines for pretty much anything. Here is the view of the drop hill construction of Yukon Striker from the Behemoth station.

Also noticed a neat sign while waiting to get on Vortex. They did a competition with their sister coaster at King's Island... or is it Dominion? Whichever one has the suspended coaster called the bat.

That lift hill looks incredibly steep from that angle. Is it the same degree incline as the other dive machines that anyone has heard?

Don't put that donkey on the floor!

^ I believe it's the same as Valravn, which is 47 degrees.

That capacity "battle" is actually quite interesting. Both rides have the exact same layout, and the Bat has an extra car per train, so you think that it would win. But then again, the entrance is way out in the middle of nowhere so the trains are probably less full then on Vortex. Interesting!

So if I am understanding the stats correctly, Yukon is the exact same height as Valravn. It just has a longer drop and is faster since it goes underground, right? For some reason it still seems taller to me but I guess that could be because Valravn is part of a more competitive skyline.

I didn't take pictures this weekend but at the turnaround for YS near the Flying Canoes - there seems to be going up some pretty cool rusted steel theming

Also Vortex going around the YS drop is pretty great. I really like how they incorporated the rides and lake together. Query though on the tunnel - does anyone else think it is strange the tunnel is only for the pull out after the vertical drop is finished. Oblivion and Sheikra both have the tunnels start during the vertical portion of the drop.

That's not theming. It's shoring (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shoring).
